Presentation Description

Participants will be shown the Pyramid Method of Library Instruction in which students are taught to search using the advance search screen in Google. From there students move to Google Scholar, general academic sources and finally to targeted scholarly resources. The Association of College and Research Libraries’ Information literacy standards are still applicable with this method as are various forms of one-shot assessments. Depending upon the length of the library instruction session, evaluation of sources can be included as well.
